Side Tracked by Spectacular

February 2, 2016

The next day’s ride-to-work did not materialize as planned: it rained during the night, leaving slick, wet roads. I had too much stuff to carry the few miles to work, and truth be told, I ran out of time to load up the bike that morning. (Insert thought: “If only I had a bike with hard cases… how much easier it would be to commute!”)

The weather cleared beautifully during the work day. I was sorely tempted to keep the bike close by, but with another storm expected the next day, I opted to shuttle her back to a dry parking spot in a friend’s garage across town.

As I headed south from home, I noted that the day was ending with a seriously gorgeous sunset, and what the hell, there was no deadline to put the Seca away, so I veered west to the newest section of coastal trail, south end. And got to see this:

Sunset at Noyo Headlands South Trail

Seriously, who can resist a sunset like this?

I sat and contemplated the clouds for a short time before heading out again.

Motorcycle and sky

I watched the colors change for a bit, then mounted up to get the bike inside and myself home before dark. But, then, you know how the colors get richer as the light fades? I was sure glad I’d grabbed the phone…

Sunset on the Pacific Ocean

Last look at a spectacular sunset.

Short ride. Spectacular view. Lucky me.

Until next time… cheers!

    Perfect last photo. Living on the left coast we don’t get to ride into the sunset, but they sure look pretty in the rearview mirror.

    That sunset truly is spectacular.
